Guidance from Eileen Caddy

Take Time to Sort Yourself Out From Time to Time

Be still and take time to sort yourself out from time to time and don't imagine because you have done it once it is for all time. Things crowd in so easily and
 so quickly, there has to be a constant clearing away of the old to make room for the new. Every soul has to keep their lives and their minds cleared of discontent,
 intolerance, criticism, which when allowed to grow in the wrong places can like weeds choke and kill so very easily and very quickly. You have to keep constantly on the alert. There are times when you have to make yourself do something, make yourself take that extra step forward, when you would much rather do nothing. This may be a small personal discipline which you may need. Therefore do not fight against it. It is much easier when you are tired, to turn over and indulge in a few minutes more sleep, rather than make yourself get up and get on with what has to be done. If you start slipping over the little things, you will
 soon find it will become more and more of an effort over the bigger issues in life. So I say, watch yourself.

One of the co-founders of the Findhorn Community, Eileen Caddy, received guidance from the "still, small voice within" and shared it with others in the community for more than 40 years until she passed away in 2006. Today we continue this tradition by printing her guidance - as relevant today as it was when she received it - in the community's weekly newsletter and by sharing it with the wider world by email.
